Last Wednesday, Josh and I received a vanload of volunteers from Holy Comforter Episcopal Church. The group was a mix of folks from the Friendship Center and interns from the Candler School of Theology. After they piled out, we exchanged greetings, briefly caught up with each other, and finally joined hands in prayer. Will, one of the Friendship Center participants, led us in offering to God words of gratitude for the chance to work in the open air, as well as words inviting God to make our common work holy and good. After the amen, we divided into groups and set about repairing the greenhouse plastic, planting seed pallets, and feeding the farm’s livestock.
This week was our first week of the season without Angela, and it was evident after Monday. Lucky for us, we had one killer group of volunteers from Turner Broadcasting. This group of 20+ volunteers helped us clear our lower field on Mary Dell rd. They did what would have taken us at least a week! Thank you thank you thank you!
We, Farmer Ceci and Angela, would like to extend a BIG thank you to all the volunteers that have come out to help Oakleaf Mennonite Farm with the mulching, watering, harvest, market and information. It has been great meeting you all and we are really grateful! It is with your continued support that we keep the farm looking great.
Thanks so much to you all!
